[Feature Request] Owner info text on Lock screen too short

Quite​ plainly the field is TOO SHORT barely enough to put in descriptive and meaningful text.

If you misplaced your phone and someone picks it up then whoever picks it will need quite a bit of guidance in contacting its owner. A mere 20 bytes is presently allowed == 9 characters for name and 11 characters for number is not very helpful at all.

In this age of ultra gigabyte phone RAM sizes, i find it counter-intuitive that at least 256bytes could not be allocated for the lock screen message.

Perhaps such could be included in the next Firmware update.

I would love to be able to display my full email address (which is more than 19 characters)!

I'm gonna bump this one. I expected to be able to fill in my information like name, street, zip code and possibly another phone number   in case I lost my phone and someone nice found it. In MIUI v9 it's still limited to a very small amount of characters. I bet there are a lot of people who can't even fill in their full name in this box.

I think 20 chars is so short to put in a little info to get back ours mobile phones, when lost.
Please Xiaomi, increase this field.
Thank you!

I totally agree with ehin about this feature. Ideally this should be long enough to allow a user to write a message to show important info when the mobile is lost. The lock screen info text should scroll when in lock mode. At the moment I cannot even place my whole e-mail address. Please add this feature ASAP.

This is really pointless to make the owner info field so short!

I've just purchased a Note 5 Pro and upgraded to miui 10.0.4 global and the owner info length is still not extended. It is far, far too short to be of any use.

I'm not holding out much hope for any response given this issue has been identified for over a year and not resolved plus the lack of progress in resolving the removal of themes - totally unavailable in the eu due to gpdr for over a year as well !

I have the same request.

Apparently this bug has been re-introduced to MIUI 12.
